Glow Star

Shannety and I have been doing quite a lot of work for her webshop lately. But we have found time to do some other stuff too. Latex obviously. And experimenting with lighting setups and colorgels too. The light setup makes her glow like a star.

When we shot this, I had a couple of outfits from LatexSensation on loan. Shannety looked at the outfit she’s wearing and said: “Oh my god! I love that jacket!”. She changed into the outfit and we set off for a little shoot.

We loved that biker jacket from LatexSensation so much, that I ended up buying it. You’ll see more of it in the future.

Private Airshow

I am used to the sound of military jets flying over the house. Living close to the Air Bases of Volkel, Gilze-Rijen and Kleine Brogel, there are F-16’s in the skies quite often. But when I hear, the sound of multiple jets coming and going my aviation brain is automatically put in a state of alert. Some of the jet noise did not sound familiar so I decide to go and have a look outside. As I step out on to the back porch, I gasp and run back inside to grab my camera.

“There is a Lightning in the sky! There is a Lighting in the sky!” As I grab my camera, I still can’t beleive it, but there really is a F-35 Lightning II of the Royal Dutch Air Force in the sky. A very rare sight in the skies over Belgium and the Netherlands. There really was a Lightning in the sky and it was doing flyby’s over my home.

On top of that, I saw a couple of Vipers hiding in the tree line. First 1, then 2, then even more F-16 Fighting Falcon of the Belgian Air Force appeared over the treeline behind my house. Not in the regular combat formation–about 2km apart–but much closer. I knew something was up.

I keep watching and in true Top Gun style, I exclaim: “Holy sh*t! It’s Vador!” as I see the Dark Falcon skipping over the trees too. In case you don’t know: Vador is the 2020 F-16 demo pilot for the Belgian Air Force. His F-16 is nicknamed Dark Falcon.

I know that these aren’t the greatest pics but you can just about make out the 2020 paint scheme of the Dark Falcon.

He was part of a 12 ship formation performing a flyby at Kleine Brogel Air Base with the Dutch F-35 and an Airbus A330-200 MRTT as a farewell to the commander of the Belgian Air Force I learned later.

The A330-200 MRTT of the Royal Dutch Air Force is rare sight in the skies over Belgium. Stationed at Eindhoven Air Base, these A330-200 MRTT will serve as air-to-air refueling planes for NATO. I watched as a number of F-16 Fighting Falcon of the Belgium Air Force lined up with it for a formation flight.

Lifestyle Session with Elinne

Elinne called me up and said she needed a photo for the header of her website. She asked if I would mind shooting a couple of portraits for her. I happily obliged and we walked away with this cool sporty chique photo.

Closet Secrets

It is a lot of fun to shoot for Shannety’s online shop. You all know I much I like working with here, right? There is probably no better days than when she in the studio.

And I don’t mind shooting a little fashion from time to time. But shooting latex is a lot more fun for me. So we decided to combine the best of both worlds. We matched the Blaine blouse from Shannety’s SecretLittleCloset to a latex skirt from my latex closet. A true closet secret you might say.

The top and sunglasses are for sale over at SecretLittleCloset (while supplies last). The latex miniskirt is from William Wilde and belongs to my private collection. It is not for sale.

Photoshoots During COVID-19 (Update 3)

We are settling into a life with COVID-19. The virus is still among us and we will just have to learn to live with it for a little while. Therefor, I decided to limit the number of photoshoots I will do until the end of 2020. I’ll do only a few shoots per month in the last quarter of 2020. And I will give priority to my regulars.

I will continue to adhere to the extra measure I imposed in earlier communications:

  • Photoshoots will be at least 10 days apart;
  • All photoshoots will be one-on-one sessions only. It will be just the model and me on set for the whole duration of the session. I will not allow make-up artists, stylists, chaperones or other models on set;
  • I will keep at least 1.5m between myself and the model at all times. Models will adhere to keeping distance too;
  • I will contact the model via telephone the day before the shoot to confirm that either party shows no symptoms of COVID-19 or other infectious diseases;My photoshoots will at least 10 days apart;
  • I will not agree to photoshoots on the public domain;
  • Location shoots will only be possible in well ventilated indoor locations or outdoors;
  • My studio is well ventilated and kept clean. I will continuously ventilate my studio during the shoot;
  • Studio props and equipment will be disinfected before use;
  • I will wear a mask during the entire shoot. Models are requested to wear a mask while not on set;
  • Latex outfits will be washed and disinfected the day before a shoot.

Stay safe! Stay healthy! I am sure that we can continue to collaborate when we take care of our health.

Summer Days by the Pool

Daria and I had spent the whole day in a hot studio having lots of fun. We felt it was time for a refreshing dip in the pool. We were down to the last outfit: a lime green body from William Wilde that we matched with a rhinestone belt I got from Elissa Poppy. That would prove to be the perfect outfit to splash around in. The perfect ending to a great shooting day.

Oh, wait… Possibly the best part of the day was spending the evening talking over dinner and a glass of wine. The summer of 2020 wasn’t all that bad after all.

Fashion from SecretLittleCloset

Little over a month ago, Shannety–one of my favorite models–launched her webshop SecretLittleCloset. She worked hard on this project. For her website she got a little help from me. And it was pretty much a matter of course that I would also be the one to photograph her collection for her website. Here’s a few pics from the sessions for her 1st collection.

As you can see, Shannety is very happy with the release of her webshop. As am I, by the way. I am very happy and honored, she choose me as her resident photographer to shoot her collection. And I’m truly proud of what she’s accomplished over the last couple of months. You rock girl!

Building a Webshop

When your favorite model calls you to ask if you wanna help her with a new project, what would you say? When I got the question from Shannety, I said:”What are your plans? How can I help?”. That started us on an adventure to build a webshop. She did most of the work. I helped her with the photography of course and provided a lot of consultancy. And tataaaa… A few weeks later, or rather a few months later, she has a webshop selling the cutest dresses and more.

I am quite excited about the launch of her webshop today. We’ve both put a lot of effort and hours in the project. I am proud of what we’ve accomplished so fare. I wish her the best of luck with the shop. And I will continue to support her of course.

Light Up Her Face

I don’t put out model calls very often. But when I do, I am fortunate enough to get response from the coolest ladies. Axelle replied to my model call of January to test new lighting setups.

The blue & pink shots from a previous post were results from one of the new setups I wanted to try. The other setup was one with colored rim lights. Having done some black & white portraits with rim lights previously, I wanted to take it to the next level.

Latex & Vanilla with Shannety

Back in January, I had Shannety and her friend Elinne over for a shoot. We started of that shoot with some portraits and stuff. But you know me: no shoot is complete without some latex. So halfway through the shoot Shannety and I shifted to a latex and vanilla outfit in a little more moody setting. At first, she wore a half cup semi-transparent latex bra from Elissa Poppy and stylish black vanilla pants.

Eventually, Shannety changed in to a full latex outfit and her friend Elinne joined her for a small series. Shannety’s wearing a skirt from William Wilde. As is Elinne. And Elinne is wearing a top from KinkyKex. Elinne is wearing high heels from Pleaser Shoes.
